2003 saw the first ever CST University Publication Award. Competing were papers authored or co-authored by academic researchers, published either in scientific journals or in conference proceedings, and whose numerical results were entirely or in part obtained through simulation using CST software products.
Submissions were evaluated on a number of criteria including originality of the application or of the theory, clarity of presentation, as well as the skillful usage of the CST software features.
After much consideration, 4 papers were selected for the CST University paper award:
G. Antonini, A. Cicciomancini, A. Orlandi, "S_Parameters Characterization of Through, Blind, and Buried Via Holes", IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, Vol. 2, No. 2, April-June 2003, pp 174-184.
F. Falcone, T. Lopetegi, M. Laso, M. Sorolla, "Novel Photonic Crystal Waveguide in Microwave Printed Ciruit Technology", Microwave and Optical Technology Letter, Vol. 34, No. 6, September 2002
